Pocket Fast 2,840% Gains... Starting 24 Hours From Now
Our research team has unearthed an opportunity to begin pocketing as much as 2,840% gains before the next market correction. It has to do with one tiny mining company - and one enormous discovery.

Bottom line: The discovery could help to replace $10.4 trillion in oil profits, while powering the global economy of the future.
To find out how soaring demand from the U.S., China, Russia and others is about to send shares of this obscure company soaring... please go here now for the full report.


What Really Caused the Stock Market 'Flash Crash'

[Editor's Note: If you want the straight scoop on the U.S. stock market "flash crash," Money Morning's Shah Gilani is the man to ask - after all, it was Gilani who warned weeks in advance that troubled loomed for the markets - positioning subscribers to his Capital Wave Forecast advisory service to reap triple-digit gains as a result of the market drop.]

Just when you thought it was safe to get back into U.S. stocks, you think you see a shark.
If you are searching - like the regulatory lifeguards and all the political beach bums - to pinpoint and kill the menacing shark that took a huge bite out of investor confidence when the Dow Jones Industrial Average tanked 1,000 points in a just a few minutes late in the day on May 6, don't bother to scan the horizon looking for the dorsal fin of some lurking predator.
The threat you fear isn't under the water: It is the water.
We're talking about market liquidity.

Officially, China claims to have roughly a quarter of a million tons of copper - valued at $1.3 billion. But, "official reports" from China are rarely based in reality. There's almost 4 times that much copper sitting unreported in Shanghai warehouses. It's a vital component in China's attempt to establish a reliable electric grid across the country. The metal is already up over 110% this year and this is just the beginning. We're looking at an easy double here. Read this report to find out more.


What Does Germany's Credit-Default-Swap Ban Mean for You?

By Keith Fitz-Gerald, Chief Investment Strategist, Money Morning

Germany did something on Tuesday that I've been hoping would happen for three years: It outlawed naked short-selling and speculation on European government bonds with naked credit default swaps.
The financial institutions that have been profiting from this type of speculation immediately went on the offensive.
German officials justified the surprise, unilateral move by financial regulator BaFin by stating that the "exceptional volatility" in government debt - if accompanied by massive short-selling and naked CDS trading - could result in excessive price movements that would actually "endanger the stability of the entire financial system."

It's plain to see that storefront windows are a smudge of what they used to be
Storefront windows in Washington aren't living up to this nostalgic idea. In the more urban parts of town, they still function in the old way, letting people covet goods and peer into the spectacle of shopping. But there is a new breed of window in town -- the empty, big-box, nothing-to-see-here window -- that is covered over from the moment a new retail store moves in.

The weird thing, though, is that there really weren't any especially nasty headlines. The U.S. economic news wasn't red-hot, but markets have blithely cold-shouldered much worse in the past 12 months. So what's really going on? See full story
